More Electric Picnic coverage including stage times and more info.

1. Glass Animals

Sunday, Body & Soul main stage, 10:30pm

One of my favourite new bands of the year. I first encountered the Oxford band at SXSW and they were an impressive live act. Since then, their ZABA album has established them as purveyors of quality ambient indie R&B.

Glass Animals - Black Mambo (Live in London)

2. FKA Twigs

Hypnotic and hyper-visual electronic R&B music made by Londoner Tahliah Barnett, a dancer and young ambitious artist. Her debut album LP1 is an intimate, lustful and personal portrait and live, she picks up a microphone like few others.

3. Jungle

Sunday.

Nostalgically-charged sunshine soul from two English dudes. ‘Busy Earnin’ is one of the songs of the year, obviously.

4. I Have A Tribe

Sunday, Body & Soul main stage, 7:15pm

A member of other bands including Slow Skies, Patrick O’Laoghaire’s debut solo EP showcases an artist at home between balladeering and experimental sounds who has the song always in mind.

5. Kaytranada

Saturday.

One of the most prolific and promising electronic producers around, his remixes for AlunaGeorge, Disclosure and Janet Jackson are certified funky floorfillers and his original material shows off a finger-snapping, head-nodding R&B and hip-hop influence. He’s recently signed to XL too.
